Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Good Friday Offering celebrates generous support for Middle East ministries [Episcopal News Service] The Episcopal Church’s annual Good Friday Offering appeal, which gathers and distributes funds in support of ministries throughout the Anglican Communion’s Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East, is celebrating its most generous collection in 10 years.Funds collected from the 2014 Good Friday Offering and available for distribution this year totaled $377,663.51, more than $110,000 on the previous year and the largest offering since 2005, said the Rev. Canon Robert D. Edmunds, Middle East partnership officer for the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society.Edmunds said the offering is “a tangible expression of solidarity with our sister and brother Christians” throughout the province.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori writes annually to all Episcopal Church congregations asking them to consider assistance for Jerusalem and the Middle East through the collections they receive during Good Friday services.“The offering we collect on Good Friday carries on the ministry of Jesus of Nazareth, through support for the many ministries of healing, feeding, and teaching among the dioceses of the province,” Jefferts Schori wrote in her January 2015 letter.The Episcopal Church of Jerusalem and the Middle East includes the four dioceses of Cyprus and the Gulf, Egypt, Iran, and Jerusalem. The Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem includes more than 30 social service institutions throughout Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and the Palestinian Territories.“Refugees are cared for, the sick and injured are healed, the dead are buried, children educated, women empowered by these ministries – and all are welcomed with open arms, like Abraham and Sarah’s guests,” Jefferts Schori wrote in her letter. “Jesus cared for all in need, without regard for nationality or creed, and these ministries do the same. It is the work of shalom and salaam, building peace in the hearts of suffering individuals and communities…. May our offering … strengthen the bonds among all God’s people, and bless each one with concrete and eternal signs of more abundant life.”The Rev. Bill Schwartz, treasurer and provincial secretary for the Episcopal Church in Jerusalem and the Middle East, told ENS that the province is “richly blessed each year” by the generosity expressed through the Good Friday Offering.“Part of the Good Friday Offering helps keep our provincial administration strong,” said Schwartz, an Episcopal Church missionary, “but the majority of the funds are used to extend the outreach of the church among those beyond our membership, giving the church an opportunity to give practical witness of Christ’s love among all people groups in the Middle East.”The Good Friday Offering dates back to 1922, when the U.S.-based Episcopal Church sought to create new relationships with and among Christians throughout the Middle East. From these initial efforts, which focused on a combination of relief work and the improvement of ecumenical and Anglican relations, the Good Friday Offering was created.“Through the years many Episcopalians have found the Good Friday Offering to be an effective way to express their support for the ministries of the four dioceses of the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East,” according to information on The Episcopal Church website. “Pastoral care, education and health care continue to be primary ministries through which the reconciling spirit of the Christian faith serves all in need. Participation in this ministry is welcome. The generous donations of Episcopalians help the Christian presence in the Land of the Holy One to be a vital and effective force for peace and understanding among all of God’s children.”— Matthew Davies is an editor/reporter of the Episcopal News Service.

Casa Puebla displays a concept towards inside life where the visual motif is the Popocatépetl volcano, one of the most important natural icons in central Mexico.The residence was conceived through inspiration regarding the aesthetic values of Mexican culture translating them into an avant-garde concept, in a fresh, contemporary and warm way, carefully selecting materials, as well as encouraging its residents to live both on the inside and to the outside through the openings towards the garden. Color and material palette seeks to blend architecture with its context, being an implicit tribute to the volcano.Save this picture!© Jorge TaboadaSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Jorge TaboadaVolumetric design is defined according to the intersection of two rectangular volumes, creating an L-shape structure. The volume scheme is perceived as a visual contradiction, where the heavier looking block was intentionally set on the lighter looking one, placing a closed concrete volume on top of one made of glass, generating a contrasting visual dynamic.When approaching the house, the exterior can be perceived as blind and private, with a solid character that does not allow to see inside, however, upon entering the residence, a fluid and continuous space can be experienced, which opens to the exterior grounds and landscape, dissolving the boundaries between outside and inside.Save this picture!© Jorge TaboadaOne of the starting facts was that the location of the lot was compromised towards east and west, so on the upper floor the roof overhangs 5 to 6 meters as a shading strategy, specifically with the intention to safeguard social areas.At the entrance, a volume was defined as a double height space that becomes the distributor of the project, both horizontally and vertically. In this area, the staircase becomes one of the main design details, thanks to its concrete structure and floating wooden footprints.Save this picture!© Jorge TaboadaOn the ground floor, the social and service areas were defined, where the distribution unifies the living and the dining rooms, being in direct communication with the kitchen, and offering an integral and transparent living experience. At the social area, large sliding glass doors were designed to join interior and exterior spaces, increasing space considerably according to specific needs or requirements, which encourages family interaction and is ideal for social gatherings.Save this picture!© Jorge TaboadaOn the upper floor, the private areas are located, including the family room and bedrooms. On this level, wooden shutters were used as sun protection for the rooms.The material selection was based on the use of exposed textured surfaces to follow in a subtle way the regional tradition of tiles with identifiable textures.Save this picture!© Jorge TaboadaClearly, the board form concrete texture walls define a solid architectural identity for the house. Also, concrete joins wood on floor and wall applications, creating a contrast effect between both materials. It is worth noting that the light and shadow effect achieved on concrete walls due to natural lighting is one of the main design intentions, creating harmonious environments with great visual impact.Save this picture!© Jorge TaboadaSave this picture!Longitudinal section 02Save this picture!© Jorge TaboadaTo promote interior space continuity and flexibility, a creative structural solution was proposed to reach an 8- meter span without having to use a post-tensioned slab structure. Considering this matter, a 20-centimeter double slab with intermediate rebar structure elements with a 1.50-meter separation was designed and constructed, defining a slab height of 80 centimeters, which can be considered a concrete open slab system.For the ground floor, the solution was to use a structural hybrid system of steel columns that includes a concrete core, which solves the open space and has a good performance in relation to seismic events, and at the same time providing the necessary support for the upper floor which has a greater structural load. Likewise, this column system allows having an open social area and greater privacy in the family area.Save this picture!© Jorge TaboadaThe construction process is traditional, and even artisanal, taking special care during the casting process and finishing of all concrete elements, due to its final finishing condition and being one of the main design materials for the project.As part of a sustainability strategy, the double height access ensures a continuous interior vertical ventilation. Also, by using sliding doors to create an open atmosphere cross ventilation is guaranteed, which avoids air conditioning usage completely.Save this picture!© Jorge TaboadaNatural light is essential inside this house defining interior environments naturally lit, minimizing artificial lighting which decreases interior space temperature and energy costs.To promote cool and shaded spaces, several reflecting pools, water features and extensive vegetation were defined both for the garden and entrance, which contributes to thermal sensation improvement and encourages the use and appropriation of exterior spaces.Save this picture!© Jorge TaboadaRegarding facades, double facades were used as solar protection, creating intermediate areas that serve as ventilation spaces or as terraces. Following the same intention, a series of shutters were used on the upper floor to avoid solar incidence over the building, which allows architecture to transform from a completely blind facade to an open one, an interesting effect that is defined according to its inhabitants’ needs.Save this picture!© Jorge TaboadaProject gallerySee allShow lessdaodaocoffee / HAD Architects& EPOSSelected ProjectsHillside View / ARRCCSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/916044/casa-puebla-rdlp-arquitectos Clipboard Area: 5688 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officerdlp arquitectosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSustainabilityHeroica Puebla de ZaragozaMexicoPublished on April 29, 2019Cite: “Casa Puebla / rdlp arquitectos” [Casa Puebla / rdlp arquitectos] 29 Apr 2019.

The volunteer initiative was part of the Annual General Managers’ conference held at the Hilton London Gatwick Airport.The six teams, totalling 127 people, were given three hours to complete their missions, which varied from clearing and planting pathways and flowerbeds to painting a play house.“We wanted to bring a different dimension to our meeting this year,” says Wolfgang M. Neumann, Area President Hilton UK & Ireland, which operates 78 hotels. “This hands-on approach re-iterates the aim of the Hilton in the Community Foundation – to provide for the communities local to our hotels, not just by providing funds but by taking an active interest.

These lightly edited remarks were made by Mumia Abu-Jamal in a prerecorded message that aired on October 14 during “Conversations with Trudy,” an online interview program hosted by Trudy Knockless. The full episode is available at tinyurl.com/y3pscmjr and includes commentary by Workers World Party member Ted Kelly.Why did I even suggest the radical notion that the government is totally fascist? Most historians would disagree with the idea that there could ever be fascism in the U.S. As a student of history, I probably would have disagreed myself a few years ago. I know that in my youth as a member of the Black Panther Party we spoke about “the fascist government” of Richard Nixon, the former Attorney General John Mitchell and Spiro Agnew, and their war against Black America and Black freedom movements. We used words like fascism and I think we were trying to speak about the threat of things coming but not the threat of things that existed.Until a friend of mine — my doctor, actually — talked to me about the period of American history after Reconstruction. Again, students of history know we’re talking about a period of history after 1865, after the Civil War, and after the so-called Reconstruction amendments to the Constitution, the 13th, the 14th, and the 15th amendments which granted the rights to vote and the right to be a citizen to African American freedmen. So for ten, perhaps fifteen years, Reconstruction obtained that in many parts of the South.And then it was crushed by terrorist wars waged by the Ku Klux Klan, the White Citizens Council, and other similar white supremacist organizations allied with the state to crush the freedom movement of African American people. This was a fascist war that the government ignored because it was on one side. People wrote to Washington but they got no answers. Black people were driven out of Congress and then driven away from the vote at the risk of being robbed, beaten, terrorized, murdered, or burned — or all those things. So we had fascism in the United States at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th.W.E.B. DuBois writes about the Red Summers of the teens of the 20th century, 1918, 1919. And there were white riots against Black communities in Cincinnati, in Philadelphia, in Louisville, and all across the country. That was fascism. And we’re used to thinking about fascism in the context of Mussolini in Italy or Hitler in Germany. But we’re not used to seeing this read as an American face or in an American accent. And that’s our fault. That’s our problem. We have ignored history to our detriment.Think about this. If the American Constitution granted the rights of Black people to vote after the Civil War ended in 1865, why did it take the Civil Rights Movement of 100 years later to make those rights real and to call for the recall of laws that diminished Black freedom?So we’re thinking about fascism. And I think we need to look at it and then look at this era that we’re living in now.Ona MOVE. From a Prison Nation, this is Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Within a year she was working as a full-time area coordinator, coordinating with hall directors and RAs – a role she held for 16 years.Higgins said she loved working hands-on and supporting all students and faculty. She was constantly seeking out ways to better the experiences for not only the students but for her team members and coworkers alike. “There are many former hall directors who will tell you that Kay’s mentorship was vital in helping them be successful,” said Dr. Don Mills, a distinguished professor of educational leadership. Mills, whose been at TCU since 1972, is a former director of housing, associate dean of students and longtime work colleague of Higgins. “Many of those who prospered under Kay’s guidance have themselves gone on to successful careers in student affairs,” said Mills. While Higgins enjoyed her time in housing, she was always “looking for other playgrounds to play in.” The position of director of new student orientation was one that Higgins had seen filled multiple times over the years and one she felt ready to take on. “So, I finished out my housing role and became the director of new student orientations, which I did for 16 years,” Higgins said. “When Don became vice chancellor of student affairs in 1994, my role was moved to Student Development Services.” When Higgins joined SDS, it directed five organizations – now there are nearly 300.While working in SDS, Higgins also became the first director of what is now the Gender Resource Office to support and encourage women to grow during their time on campus. Higgins has always had a strong passion for women’s success, especially on the college campus. She utilized her leadership position to ensure the success and stability of this campus’s resources. Her passion came in part from looking at national data that showed women frequently belittle all of their accomplishments and hard work due to lack of confidence. “When looking at resumes and applications for women students, they showed the women were performing at the top of all their classes and making significant contributions,” said Higgins. “ But the women were rating themselves in the low 30th percentile for feeling they were competent at doing these things, and that always bothered me.”In order to combat these statistics, Higgins held lectures and workshops helping students understand “that who you perceive you are and who you perform to be are not in agreement, you just have to step up.” TCU’s growth Higgins was born and raised in Georgia and attended Mercer University, a small school in Macon, Georgia. Coming from a campus with roughly 500 total students in each class, Higgins said that when she first arrived in Fort Worth she “thought this place was bigger than New York City.”While to Higgins the school was notable and prominent, to the city of Fort Worth it was just another cluster of buildings. Higgins said it best, saying at the time TCU was the “untapped Texas secret.” Back then, Higgins would get calls from parents who lived less than 15 minutes from campus, but had no idea where the campus was. This integration of the campus and the city was not something that came easy but rather something the people had to work hard to bring about. “Now, TCU is such a dynamic party of the economy, of the city and the culture and in infusion of people from around the world,” said Higgins. With the building of that community relationship, cultural and geographic diversity became another priority for TCU, Higgins said. “The intention to diversify was very, very specific and calculated,” Higgins said. “Because ultimately, the more diverse an institution is, the better education every student will receive, as long as students are open to learning from others.” ReflectionHiggins’s dedication and work, which was largely behind the scenes, never went unnoticed. “At TCU we pride ourselves on being a connected campus. Kay took that responsibility seriously: helping students who were struggling, identifying new ways to support students, mentoring staff and being 100% pro-student. Kay is what it means to be a true ‘Horned Frog’,” Mills said.Having worked under four chancellors, Higgins has watched and taken part in the growth of the university over the last 43 years.Along with Mills and Higgins, one other person who has been at TCU since the early 1980s is a long-time friend and colleague, Mary Ruth Jones.Jones, who is also retiring this year, said TCU will be losing a special and devoted colleague.

Even though her career at TCU is ending, Higgins has no plans of slowing down. “I always find myself wanting to get into more philanthropy work, but because there are only so many hours in the day, I find myself saying ‘no’ a lot,” said Higgins. “So after I nap for two months, I am going to work trying to make what contribution I can to Fort Worth and to TCU!”As Mills said, even though Higgins didn’t attend TCU, she is just as much a Horned Frog as any student on campus.
